The sessions: a chance to ask questions
In a 1 hour, online session we can cover:
Where we are with decarbonisation
what drives climate change
why it's so difficult to address
what the most impactful solutions are
what we can all do to help (it may not be what you think)
what our future is likely to look like, based on science and our current action
the opportunities it presents
Questions are encouraged
All sessions are free
We can schedule around you
Can be open Q and A to build your confidence on climate.
Understanding leads to solutions
The philosopher Timothy Morton describes climate change as a hyper-object; an entity of such vast dimensions that it defeats traditional ideas about what a thing is in the first place.
It's a huge issue and it's very easy to feel paralysed by this, but learning how we can take action, and doing so with others, can help to ease 'climate anxiety'.
UKSSN: A Community for Teachers and Pupils
We are proud to be associated with the UK Sustainable Schools Network (UKSSN) and the great work they are doing to help teachers around the country better communicate and empower teachers and pupils to act positively on the Climate and Nature Crisis.
Free Continuing Professional Development for Teachers
Leading research into climate change and sustainability education which shapes the development of outstanding, free professional development for all teachers and school leaders from UCL (University College London)
The majority of teachers in the UK still not confident to address climate and biodiversity in the classroom? If you have time you can address that with self-led learning, this can be a great way to compliment live sessions offered here.
Streaming Resources for School and Home
There are some expertly researched, written, produced and directed films and television resources available across all the main streaming platforms. There is no reason why any teacher or pupil with internet access should be deprived of excellent resources on climate.
